Strengthening Democracy: The Lakewood Chapter Of The League Of Women Voters

Most people know that the League of Women Voters registers voters. But the League of also studies issues and influences public policy through education and advocacy. As an example, the League was an active partner in Fair Districts, the group that fought against gerrymandering in Ohio (Issue 1 passed by almost 75% in the May election). And the Greater Cleveland League of Women Voters supports ethics in government, public libraries, a health care system that delivers adequate healthcare to all citizens of Cuyahoga County, and other relevant issues. 

The League of Women Voters was born out of the National American Women’s Suffrage Association in 1920. Founders proposed the League to educate and empower the new women voters. Today, membership in the League is open to men and women.
